DIY Valentine’s Day Game: Spot the Hearts!


Bet you didn’t think it could get any simpler than the heart streamers I shared last week, huh? Wrong! Today all you need is one supply for this fun Valentine’s Day game… heart stickers! Any sort of heart stickers really, foam ones (like I used) or just plain old stickers, they all work. The name of the game is “Spot the Hearts” and I’ve determined it appropriate for all ages. All it involves is placing hearts all around your home (or wherever you please) on Valentine’s Day, for your boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife, children or anyone else lurking around on February 14th to find throughout the day!

If you’re playing the game with kids, ask them to keep count and see how many hearts they’ve found by the end of the day, and where they found them! On lunch bags, in their notebooks, on the doorknob or… on the dog? The possibilities are endless! (If your stickers of choice come with a strong adhesive, you may want to purchase a separate removable adhesive instead to make for easier removal from surfaces!)

You can also add this in at the last minute to a Valentine’s Party and give little gifts (or candy!) to anyone who spots a heart.

Happy hunting!

    Or a kiss. 😉 This is an adorable idea, Kelly! Love it…

    I love this idea! You could even expand it further by turning it into a scavenger hunt. Write little notes or memories, etc. on the hearts and have the person hunt for them. 🙂

    I tried this activity this Valentines with my children, it was great fun, however, might I suggest using sticky tac to stick your hearts anywhere that you don’t want a sticker permanently stuck to. Or buy some goo gone as well as a glass scraper. I found that the stickers did not come off as nicely as I hoped and had some in depth clean up work to do afterward.
